About State Bank

We're proud of our history, but we don't rest on it.

Local business leaders founded State Bank of Southwest Missouri in 1985 with a profoundly simple mission:

Provide the best, most individualized service possible by always keeping the clients' best interest in mind.

We've never wanted to be the biggest bank in town or to merge with a mega-bank. We're truly a local bank, focused on providing unparalleled service that larger banks simply can't deliver.

Each of our bank officers have been with us more than five years and six officers have been here more than 20 years. While our bank saw major additions in 1990 and again in 2001, we remain one bank with one clear commitment: to serve your best interest. First, last and always.

Our commitment to unparalleled client service has earned us the reputation of being the most service-intensive bank in Springfield.

  • We greet you by name.
  • We listen and respond with a full range of banking products and services that truly fit your financial needs.
  • We answer our phones in person, rather than routing you through an unresponsive, automated voice messaging system.
  • If need be, we'll even arrange to meet you after normal banking hours to discuss specific needs.

We do it all because we have your best interest in mind.

We think it's the only way to run a bank.
